We previously reported on an interim I-9 rule from December 2008 (see U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Announces Revised I-9 Form). Citizenship and Immigration Services now has finalized the interim rule. The final rule is effective May 16, 2011. As a practical matter, the final rule continues the provisions we discussed in this previous blog from two years ago. Employers therefore simply should continue to follow these provisions as they have for the past two years.
